With reports of increasing cases of COVID-19, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut will now enforce mandatory 14-day quarantines on visitors from states. Starting today, the order affects people from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, and Texas.
In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo says police will be stopping people with out-of-state license plates and violators could face fines. Hotel employees are also being asked to question guests about the quarantine order.
Someone not playing along? President Trump. He will not follow New Jersey's mandatory quarantine when he travels to his golf club there this weekend. The word from the White House is that Trump "is not a civilian," and therefore doesn’t have to comply.
